Team India must take a sigh of relief as their star bowler Mohammed Shami all set back in cricket after recovering from keen surgery. Shami has not played a single game after the semifinal against Australia at Sydney Cricket Ground in the World Cup 2015 on March 26.  

Shami will now play in the Vijay Hazare Trophy for Bengal to return in the limited over tours of Australia, T20 Asia Cup and ICC World T20 2016 at home.

Shami’s return in the team will boost India’s confidence before the gruelling limited over assignments.

India will fly for Australia on January 6 for 7 for five ODIs and three T20Is on the Australia tour starting January 12.

“I am back after eight months, so I am taking it slow and easy… I am gearing up to play in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. It will be a good preparation going into the limited-overs series against Australia,” Shami told PTI.

 

During the World Cup Shami, 25,  has taken 17 wickets at an average of 17.29 but the knee injury ruled him out from the team as he ha undergone for as surgery in Mumbai on May 5.

His recovery period was so though that he could not walk for  a month and needed support with crutches, but he now fully fit after rehab and training at the Bengaluru’s National Cricket  Academy (NCA).

His long injury layoff may make his comeback tough. The selectors will keep a close eye on every detail related to his return to the bowling crease.
